Acupuncture 3 to 6 months before starting IVF
Based on maternal age, fertility history and any other ongoing health factors a longer time frame 3 - 6 months preparation time might suggested instead.
Your practitioner will likely want to see you on a fairly regular basis and will customize a treatment plan based on where you are at and what is needed. In general we like to see patients on a weekly basis, or perhaps every 2 weeks, often alternating or combing acupuncture with the Arvigo® Therapy techniques. We also make recommendations for important self care strategies during this time of preparation - these may include Arvigo® Therapy self care massage, castor packs or traditional pelvic steaming.
